Hey guys, long time no see. I expected this site to be dead but I see pretty much the same group of people here as when I left. Cool beans.
Is everyone here still doing Game Maker or have you all migrated to something else? I'm trying to move away from Game Maker but meh, it works and I can work with it. Although truth be told, I haven't made much in a long time, been busy with classes, failing with women and... Playing lots of video games. :D
I am kind of off-working on a game right now though. Remember Element? Probably not. One of the mods brought it back wit a fancy new engine so I have my fingers in that to keep it legit.
I'm also officially taking comp sci classes now. They're pretty cool. I like being required to use a computer to do my homework, makes it really convenient to google things.
So yeah, not much is new with me. Basically same-old same-old. I might post some stuff over the summer. Financial aid doesn't support summer classes so I have some time and will probably make some games. Good to visit the site again, congrats to the staff for not exploding the servers in my absence.
So I graduated this year, did I mention? Got an AA degree from my community college. Now I'm going to a university to study computer science. So far it's pretty cool. It's a smaller branch of a pretty big university, so I get a nice school for my resume without having massive 200+ student classes. I've only had two days of classes so far, but I'm liking it there. I'm taking Matrix Algebra, State Government, and Java. I haven't been in them quite long enough to say for sure, but I think I'm going to like all of them. And no, I didn't get to choose which programming language I wanted to take, so don't ask me why I chose Java. XD
Anyway, I may commute there, but I'm still there for 8-10 hours a day, so I decided to get a new laptop. This way I can get all of my work done there between classes... And game when I don't have homework... :D
Here's the beastly laptop I am posting this blog from right now: Asus G4SX-BBK7
It can run anything I throw at it, and it never gets warm. It's easily the best computer I've ever owned. I'm very pleased with it. You won't find a much better price than that on a laptop for the components, and its design is really spectacular. I had to shell out some extra money for a backpack big enough to store it, but it was well worth it. ^_^
Oh, and I'm working on a super secret awesome game with a few buddies. I'll share more details when I'm getting closer to being ready to release it, but here's a screenshot for now.
Anyhow, that's what's going on with me. Thanks for reading.
